Rockford Systems Announces New Combustion Safety Training Workshops

Rockford Systems (dba Rockford Combustion Solutions) announced its Combustion System Safety training workshops are now available for immediate enrollment. Program attendees can satisfy mandatory annual training requirements for NFPA 54, 85 and 86.

Scheduled on multiple dates from December to November 2021, training will be held at the company’s Rockford, IL headquarters in a COVID-19 safe environment or may be scheduled at a customer’s location facility for hands-on training.

Participants can select from a variety of workshops including: Combustion System Safety, NFPA 86 Combustion Basics, and NFPA 85 & ASME Boiler Applications. Each workshop’s aim is to educate and empower participants by providing hands-on direction from Chuck Campbell, an industrial combustion safety expert with over 35 years of field training experience.

Through the use of interactive demonstrations and instructor-supported lessons, the workshops will teach best practices for the safe operation of industrial boilers, furnaces, dryers and other fuel-fired equipment.

  • Combustion Safety System Workshop: this two-day (16 hours) in-person workshop provides more comprehensive knowledge of NFPA 86 combustion safety and equipment than the one-day basic workshops with added hands-on simulation;
  • NFPA 86 Combustions Basics: in this one-day (8 hours) remote course, attendees will learn how to administer “NFPA 86: Standard for Ovens and Furnaces” in minimizing fire hazards within commercial and industrial processing of materials. The workshop teaches many types of combustion systems, ranging from vintage to modern. Attendees will learn how to identify and use best safety practices when interacting with fuel-fired equipment; and
  • NFPA 85 & ASME-CSD-1 Applications Training: this one-day (8 hours) remote workshop provides an introduction or is a refresher class for professionals who operate or maintain boiler systems. A wide range of boiler system components are covered, and combustion safety interlocks, valve tightness testing and Burner Management Sequencing are all covered.

Although all three workshops are primarily designed for engineers, maintenance crews and EHS professionals, but are available for anyone interested in furthering their knowledge of combustion system safety and performance.
